Lead department: Engineering Department Project manager: Robert Puff, Engineering Director Funding: Tax Rate; Bond; State Aid Bridge Funds
The Town of Salem completed the reconstruction of Shannon Road Bridge over Providence Hill Brook during the 2014 construction season. Prior to replacement the existing bridge was on the NH Department of Transportation (NHDOT) "red list". The project consisted of full replacement of a metal pipe arch structure with a precast concrete rigid frame structure. The project also involved "full box" reconstruction and reclamation of the adjacent roadway including new pavement, drainage improvements, and guardrail replacement. The project begins at the Providence Hill Road intersection and extends north to the Atkinson Road intersection.
